Stars at Work

If you are here this it means you have completed and attended all Star For Life workshops. It is a privilege for Star For Life as an organisation to work with the school, the teachers and all the parents to give you the best possible education.

Here is a reminder of the key messages that we would like you to carry with into your future:

  1. Dreams can be fulfilled – All success starts with a dream.
  2. The power is within you – Our thoughts influence our feelings, and our feelings influence our behaviours.
  3. Knowledge is power – Knowledge about HIV and AIDS gives you the power to live a healthy life.
  4. Stop gender based violence – A community that respects gender diversity is a strong and vibrant community.
  5. Journey to self – If you become conscious of how you feel and think, you can learn to control what you do and avoid bad habits and behaviours that put your health and success at risk.
  6. Rights and responsibilities – Your sexual rights mean that you control your sexuality.
  7. Journey to success – Only you can decide the meaning of your personal success.
  8. Shine on!!! –  Reach for your dreams.
  • Watch your thoughts they become words;
  • Watch your words they become actions;
  • Watch your actions they become habits;
  • Watch your habits they become character;
  • Watch your character it becomes your destiny.
  • SFL values: I go for my dreams! AIDS-free, that’s me! I decide! I’m committed! I make it possible!
